Observations on experimental infection of worm-free sheep with L3 stage nematode parasites



Observations on experimental infection of worm-free sheep with L3 stage nematode parasites



Hellenike Kteniatrike Hellenic Veterinary Medicine 26(4): 491-501



Four worm-free sheep (12-14 months old) were given 3000 Trichostrongylus axei (TA), 2000 Ostertagia circumcincta (OC), 100 000 T. colubriformis (TC), or 10 000 Haemonchus contortus (HC) at the L3 stage. At slaughter 30 days later, no worms were found in the animal given TA, whilst the percentage of those that had matured in the others were: OC 33%, TC 29.2%, HC 38.5%. All sheep showed little change in body weight.
